    3.3 9AM TOURNEY ok so in this tourney we had 5500 players I busted out in 3000th place. I had about 7K after first brake I got KK new person to table limps in for 100 I make it 500 to go from mid position. he calls flop is 489 2 diamonds I have K of diamonds he bets 100 I make it 600 he calls pot is at 2400. turn is J no diamond he checks I bet 1100 leaving me 4K hes got 8K he calls. river is Q no diamond he checks I check. hes got 9Tclubs for straight on river 2 hands later same player. this is now his 5th hand at table and hes played all 5 of them for limp. I have KQ diamonds he limps I make it 600 to isolate. flop comes 864 2 diamonds he checks I bet 850 I have 2500 left he calls with 11K. turn is A he checks I shove pot was 3100 or so he calls. has Aqos and that?s the ball game folks I bust out. if I was trying to squeak into the money then I played the second hand bad but I wanted to get off to a big stack and he seemed like the perfect victim. as he had shown in the hands I played with him earlier he would of called with the 8 and maybe the 6 and probably a flush draw so I liked my chances just sucked that the donkey hit his card when he had an actual hand this time but given that my bankroll is not small at this juncture I wanted to take a shot since it?s the first tourney of the day and I have plenty of time to make up for it since im in two others with healthy stacks further updates when I bust or pop the bubble of one of them.

    11 9:15AM turbo TOURNEY SECOND BREAK 85 OUT OF 132 45 GUARANTEED so all my expenses are paid so far cram mode now
    ok so 93 got 48.24

    ANYTHING WRONG WITH THIS PLAY? I could of folded and waited for the next jump at 90 players for 3 more dollars but i felt as if at worst it was 60/40 and he might still fold weak A. Could possibly have KJ if i win this pot i should make top 15 where the moeny gets better and at some point i was gunna have to gamble in next 15 hands.

    5.5 10 AM TOURNEY 2140 out of 3482 1hr in busted out 3109 since im in the money of the 11 i took a shot on a draw on the flop and missed BUSTED
    2.2 10:40AM GOT 4.32 came in 688 out of 7200 after we broke the bubble there wasnt another pay out till 430th place or so so i waited for what looked like a good spot and shipped it and lost NEXT
    3.3 RE BUY 11:15AM ok so i had built my 1500 stack up to 7.5K then i had my AA cracked by someone AK on the last hand before break. so i reloaded and did double rebuy and add on so im in for 12.15 but with the rebuys and add ons im average chip position. OK TWO BAD BEATS IN A ROW AND IM OUT

    so far im up 10.5 for the day LOL yaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!

    ok so today i played a 2 dollar tourney a 3 dollar re buy the 10 dollar 30K guarantee and the 10 dollar 250K guarantee


    i cashed for 95 in the 250K i was in good position coming into the money bubble with 4500 people i was 250 in chips but then i went extremly card dead tried to steal with Ajos and my continuation bet on the flop got raised then it was fold till we were down to 750 players i picked up 55 on button person in cutoff limped for 5K i raied to 20K having 78K sm blind shoved limper folded i called 15K and flopped set against his AKos that put me at 110K or so with 650 players and then it went back to fold fold fold........ then i got 88 in the cutoff blinds are at 3.5 and 7K i raised to 21K total leaving me 71K get called by the loosest player on table so im not too disapointed flop comes AA4 2 spades i feel as if im still good because hes shown hell call when he has money in the pot blind protector and very unlikly he has A figure he might call me with KQ KJ maybe KT trying to be a hero and for sure with flush draw and probablly not beleiving i have A either hell call with 22 33 55 66 77 so i fired one more bet of 26K he takes a few seconds but not that i wanna look weak milk so i figure good chacne im good and since 52K isnt much at this point i figure ill shove on next card unless i get weird feeling so turn is a 9 now we got AA49 2 spades and 2 clubs i figured 60&chance im ahead and because of who the player is i shoved thinking hes not gunna call the river if he does have a draw and he calls and shows A6 so nighty night for me and im not really dissapointed for once with this bust i dont think i really did anything wrong and the couple times i got unlucky wasnt too bad and i was able to come back i wish i spiked a 8 on the river there because that would of put me in spot to final table and get aggressive and since first was 25K i wanted a shot well see next week

    cash games so far i played 25 hands or so on 10/25 chasing a fish that i have on my pokerstars player list i got him for a quick double up and he left so then i went to 25/50 10 hands into it i wake up with AA UTG i open for 2 one caller then this other fish ive got on the list shoves i guess trying to pick up dead money it was 17 total to win 4.75 i smoth called other player folds AA vs 99 and it holds so there is a quick lil pick upso im up 50 for the day or so might call it a day and go for a swim in the pool its hot out here

    ok so i caved

    ok for the last three weeks i debated on doing this and now i decided to do it its gunna be a day to day update on how im doing and a lil back drop on the day how i felt about it and anything big good or bad that happens that day
    here is some of the stuff that happened prior to today
    PokerStars Tournament #176962535, No Limit Hold'emBuy-In: $2.50/$0.255499 playersTotal Prize Pool: $13747.50 Tournament started 2009/07/06 17:00:00 ET Dear 64 DEVILS, You finished the tournament in 4th place. A USD 673.63 award has been credited to your Real Money account.

    this was a great tourney it got me out of the 50 dollar deposit and away from playing 5/10 ring games. it sucks though because i was playing great till we got 4 handed and the table was given a 5 min break and after that break i proceded to go from 1st in chips to out i made one bad play and it caused me to melt down BIG LEARNING EXPERIENCE i hope.

    i took 300 out for a reward for myself LOL

    5 days later i stumbled across a super aggr DONK and fleeced (took) him for 500 playing HU PL omaha

    then i jumped up to 25/50cent NL and didnt took some beats and didnt get my feet wet as far as trying to find the regulars in order to avoid them thanx to pt3 so i had to drop down

    so i played some tourney made some small cashes made a lil profit at 10/25 and then wam
    PokerStars Tournament #181768205, No Limit Hold'emBuy-In: $5.00/$0.50 USD2996 playersTotal Prize Pool: $40835.00 USD Tournament started 2009/08/01 16:35:00 ET Dear 64 DEVILS, You finished the tournament in 6th place. A USD 1,388.40 award has been credited to your Real Money account.
    this tourney was a lil depressing because with 600 to go
    till 11 to go i was number 2 in chips and then i went card dead and took a hit when we were 7 handed from a short stack that spiked a 3 outer and that dropped me to 5th and ultimatly when 6 handed i had to shove with A9 and got called by KQ he hit Q
    gunna take out 1K for my trip to the bay im sure ill go play one night at GC gunna play in a re buy tourney today and the 1/4 million guarantee i think then im done for the day
